All reviews castle walls degree view short walk to the castle actual castle great view of naples bay of naples entire city funicular railway contemporary art follow the signs cable car worth the effort via toledo sunny day worth the trip worth the climb nice walk
It's already a good uphill walk to get here but, as when I visited this time, when the lift is out of order it becomes an Alpine climb!
However, the views make it all worthwhile. Stunning views across the Bay of Naples and the city...More
......museum and castle have different entries and you must pay separate ticket. Staff at entrace, well, good luck with english communication
View is fantastic though, but for that you do not need to enter castle.
From top of spanish quarter there are 412 stairs before...More
Top looking point in town.
Wonderful place to spend 3hs looking at the Naples gulf (and Vesuvio).
Nothing to see in the inside but the military place itself is amazing.
I recommend to go there during beautiful weather to betray enjoy the view.
If you are like us and seeing Naples by foot / metro then you will have a bit of hassle getting to Castel Sant’Elmo... it’s rather exhausting as well going constantly up hill, however it offers you panoramic views of the entire city below you,...More
Go on a clear day -
Bite the bullet if there are 2 or more of you take a taxi
Walk around the castle once, take photos, breeze through the art gallery go to the toilet and then head off
Been there done it, sorry...More
So many stunning buildings in Napoli that this one, even though it's huge, pales comparatively but the views are stunning & also it's a very nice half day trip up by Funicular & then walk down through the maze of old Napoli to Chiaia.

Hi it’s on the hill over looking the city and the bay of Naples ,so take the funicular railway up and walk round...at at the ticket office then enter the castle from the bottom...walk to the top there’s not a lot to see on the way up BUT you’re rewarded with the most spectacular views once there....once you’re done head back down go to the monastery next door have a look around there too ,that’s quite interesting then walk down the Panoramic steps they are fantastic too
Q1: Is this the opening times for Castel Sant'Elmo: Every day except Wednesdays, from 8.30 to 19.30 ? (Can´t find the homepage) Q2: If I only want to visit the rooftop, is there an entry fee? Q3: When it´s closed on Wednesdays: Is the access to the rooftop also closed? Can I get a good view also from the hill outside the castel (or the courtyard if accessible)? /Thanks!

I understand it to be closed on Wednesdays. I doubt that there is any access to the roof without paying the entry fee. For some great views (no fee involved), you might want to take the Pedamintina, the 400 or steps from Vomero down to the city. I haven't done this, but plan to my next time in Naples. The steps are near Castel Sant'Elmo.

Castel Sant'Elmo on a Tuesday (1 Reply)
I'm seeing that Castel Sant'Elmo is closed Tuesdays -- or is that just the museum? It's our only day in Naples, and my only interest in the Castel is the view from it. If that's still available on a Tuesday we might go for it. Although I do see the arguments for skipping the Castel and just getting the view from the Certosa. Advice please?

Capodimonte vs Castel Sant'Elmo and San Martino? (1 Reply)
We'll have one day in Naples on a cruise in late October, and are trying to decide between these 2 sites. Both sound interesting in the guidebook write-ups, and it may depend some on the weather the day we are there--I'm guessing that Vomero would not be very good in rainy or foggy weather. But, aside from the weather, any thoughts on which of these 2 sites to see first and which to save for our next trip? We are hoping to see one or the other of these in the afternoon when the churches start...More

Did you mean the palace/museum of Capodimonte, or the view point near there? I loved the museum, but it would be hard to spend less than two hours there. I wouldn't suggest a long museum visit in your limited time. I would go for the views. That means Sant'Elmo and San Martino, which are almost next to each other, and are great even without the views. The "must-see" museum is the national archeological museum, just north of the Piazza Dante, and not far from the main churches. --...More
